Services We Offer …

Continence Assessment

Each person has a unique life path which may to lead them to needing some help with continence issues. We will look at each part of your unique situation during the assessment process. You may be required to complete some diaries to help with this process.

Conservative Management Strategies

Once the assessment is complete, then a range of strategies aimed at improving your particular problem will be suggested.

Access to Government Schemes

One part of these strategies may include applying to Commonwealth and/or State Government schemes for financial help with continence supplies.

This will be dependent on your eligibility for the schemes.

Urinary Catheters

There are times in the treatment of some illnesses and diseases where it is the best medical choice for a urinary catheter to be inserted into the bladder. In this unavoidable situation where a catheter has been inserted either through the urethra (IDC) or through the abdomen (SPC), receiving timely and correct education about the care of the catheter will make this experience as positive as it can be.

This may be temporary or permanent.

Community Nurses are here to educate and assist you.

Education & Care

Community Nurse Services can provide you with current evidence based education and strategies to assist you in managing your bowel or bladder problems.

Access to Supplies

Help will also be given to help you access supplies for the care of your catheter or other incontinence supplies so that purchases of unnecessary equipment is avoided.
